Pre-Workout Meal for Better Performance

Your-pre workout meal can help make for an amazing lift session, or leave you feeling slow and sluggish. Largely due to what it is your eating. Personally, I like to get a good bit of carbohydrates and some protein from foods I know my body works well with. For instance, here I have 1 cup of rice, 5oz of chicken, and just about a 1/4 cup of mixed veggies. If you consume too many calories however or a lot of fiber and/or fats before your workout, it makes it more difficult for your body to convert to its needed energy source, usually leading to a less than killer workout. Carbohydrates with a moderate glycemic index tend to be easy to digest and are quick to provide the energy needed when paired with a bit of protein for a more sustainable energy level and increased protein synthesis during your workout session.Your workout starts with your pre-workout meal. Make it count and start everything off right!

A Few Other Examples Of My Favorites

1 Cup of Oatmeal + 3 Whole Eggs (if training in the morning after breakfast).

1 Scoop of Protein Isolate + 1 serving of Cereal (I tend to go with Chex)

1/2 Cup of Quinoa + 5oz of Steak (usually if training later. After dinner. So this would be my dinner/pre-workout meal)

There’s a lot you can choose from, but these are a few of my top go to options.
